This collection of videos featuring NALC Bishop John Bradosky, NALC executive staff members, and other leaders are published regularly. Personal stories from local congregations, international missions and personal ministry experiences are also featured.
Reflections on what the word “discipleship” really means, the vision for the NALC, and what it means to be “mission-driven” are just a few of the many topics you will hear about.
As the NALC strives to be Christ centered, mission driven, traditionally grounded and congregationally focused, we hope and pray these resources will prove to be noteworthy and helpful tools in your discipleship journey.

January 9, 2018 – “Discipleship is more than just what happens on Sunday morning…” This fascinating interview with Jerry Roehr and Teresa Peters from St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba, has long-reaching implications. A congregation that still has a healthy German language worship service and a second one in English, this congregation shares some practical implications for what it means to follow Jesus regardless of language, generational differences and cultural understanding.
What began as a very creative and quirky way to help raise funds for local mission work has become a ministry opportunity at All Saints in Arlington, Texas: A chance to feed hungry children in Jesus’ Name with the hope of beginning intentional conversations in the home and among people, having the larger Kingdom vision of not trying to “grow membership” at All Saints, but to reach out with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Reading the Word of God, a daily Bible reading guide for use over the next three years, was conceived and prepared as a result of ongoing discussions between representatives of the NALC, the Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC), and the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS). The reading guide includes monthly calendars with daily readings starting in January 2018 and continuing through December 2020. As a companion to the daily Bible readings, 52 suggested weekly readings (one for each week of the year) are offered from the book, Luther and the Scriptures by Johann Michael Reu.
